The President restates his commitment to small business as key to economic recovery -- from the Recovery Act to Financial Stability to Health Reform -- and pledges more to come.
In this week’s address, President Barack Obama spoke of how important small businesses are to the economy and described the steps his administration is taking to support them. Health insurance reform will allow small business to purchase insurance for their employees through exchanges, which will increase the quality of coverage while lowering the costs, and reform will provide tax credits to those businesses. To free up credit, the President called on Congress to increase the size of various SBA loans, and he announced that the administration will be making more credit available to the small local and community banks that many small businesses depend on.
The President is doing more every day to help create and save jobs through small businesses, big businesses and much more. This is just one part of it. With the Climate Change bill, or ACES as it is also called this could also help with jobs, if only we could get our Congress to do something about it and pass it.
I will have more on the Wind Energy in the next couple of days. I have some interesting things I found that I want to share about it.. and I was surprised to learn I had wind farms right here in my back yard so to speak.. But now, here is the President.
